I have to be careful not to let this stress consume me

Sometimes the darkness just won't let me be but I want to be free

I just want these demons to release me, just let me be

If love is my hero then swoop down and save me

I've been thinking real dark thoughts lately

So save me, I'm not sure how many lives I have left

And lately it's seeming like I've failed every test

Mainly because I am tired

I go so hard trying to display my best and when I give it the most important people fail to realize that this is my best....

So stop looking for the rest

I'm struggling with demons but all you do is pass judgments

And it's time to end this vicious cycle

I'm no Arch Angel, my names not Michael

I can't face all these demons alone

The routine is old and I'll be 29 soon which means I'm too damn old

 

I'm at a point in my life where I've experienced enough turmoil

This is the shit the old heads use to warn me about when I was a child about not rushing time

Now I find myself lost in thought sometimes just wishing I could rewind

I just want to slow dance with life not go hard and stay continuously high

I should be feeling like I'm gliding

Instead however, I feel like I'm slipping and sliding

 

S.O.S

Please ,love save me...

I know you can hear me raging because my light is fading

Lead me back to the light and reassure me that everything will be alright

I want to learn better conflict resolutions because it's time to be a better person

I look in the mirror sometimes and can't stand who this is

And I admit people have helped me hate my own reflection and make me feel like I'll never know what the best of anything is

Sometimes it feels like this kinda low has to be the Devil and his menons are messing with me

Lord, the demons won't let me be

I question when I pass will your gates even open for me?

Because it doesn't matter how many lives I touch or save if I resort back to my old ways

I can feel it in my soul, I'm tethering and straddling that line because my spirit is losing its shine

I don't want Jesus to turn me away and tell me to take the one way to hell

Rightnow, I'm at a turning point in my life

Eventhough, my future is already determined and written in stone...

I feel like, I have this one time to make a decision

And it better be the right one because this is my only opportunity to alter God's planned life for me an add a helping hand to molding my destiny

And I'm tired of being wrong and living wrong

I'm ready to put the bottle down and pick the bible up but I had a good run but the things I use too love to do have lost there nastalgic fun

 

 

So I'm screaming S.O.S

I know I've got to stay sober and mindful because the devil my adversary is lurking

So please when you come don't miss me

I've got smoke signals and everything I could find that's been weighing me down burning

S.O.S

Please don't miss me because I'm in distress

 

Love save me, the darkness is coming and I can't let it get me

It's after whatever beauty I have left to offer

Save me

I lift my hands to thee on my knees, on your alter

I need to be freed before I go into cardiac arrest from all this stress

I'm not sure how many lives I have left

Sometimes, the darkness won't let me be but I want to be free not get dragged back into the streets

 

I have to be careful not to let this stress consume me

Are you my Beatrice here to save me?

I need these demons to release me

Only true love is strong enough to save me

I'll put the bottle down and wait on my hero while holding onto hope with everything I have left

I know I failed them all but I will pass this test

With God as my witness you will see my best

S.O.S

Please don't miss me because I'm in distress
